Re:

Reference for a preliminary ruling — Wojewódzki Sąd Administracyjny w Gliwicach — Interpretation of Article 4(2) of Council Directive 69/335/EEC of 17 July 1969 concerning indirect taxes on the raising of capital (OJ, English Special Edition 1969 (II), p. 412), as amended by Council Directive 85/303/EEC of 10 June 1985 (OJ 1985 L 156, p. 23) — Right of a Member State to reintroduce a tax abolished on the date on which it acceded to the European Union — Capital duty — Charging of capital duty on a loan taken out by a capital company with a person entitled to a percentage of the profits of that company

Operative part of the judgment

Article 4(2) of Council Directive 69/335/EEC of 17 July 1969 concerning indirect taxes on the raising of capital, as amended by Council Directive 85/303/EEC of 10 June 1985, must be interpreted as precluding a Member State from reintroducing a capital duty on a loan taken up by a capital company, if the creditor is entitled to a share in the profits of the company, where that Member State has previously waived the levying of that tax.
